  1. That is pretty much what I thought. I think folding preflop was probably the best move. He ended up having 10s. I got lucky and won the hand but I felt like I was playing blind the whole way.
  2. Oops, you caught me. I never once said anything about the read I got in any of my previous posts! Well maybe I did in almost every post but maybe you didn't read that.
  3. I completely agree with you. I had no intention of folding when I initially raised him. It was the way he insta shoved and seemed so freaking confident about his hand, even when I verbalized that I had KK. I can't argue that raising and then folding was a good play, it was just the read I got from him that told me I was beat. I wasn't looking for a tell when I raised, I just happened to get a big one. Do you think he made a mistake? If he flat calls my raise then I probably go broke on this hand.
  4. So are you defending me somewhat that the raise actually did have some merit?
  5. I am afraid to respond to anything at this point. Here was my thinking though and I am sure the bashing will begin as soon as I do too, but here goes. Preflop the guy who hasn't played anything raises 10x the bb. At worst in my opinion he has AK. I was about to raise when I figured, hes made a huge preflop bet, if I shove he is probably going to insta call. I am pretty sure we have all lost w/KK plenty of times and I figured if no ace hits this flop I may be able to take it down. If he happens to have AK, I can simply call, see a flop, and then decide what to do. When he came out firing
  6. I guess that is what my main point was in asking you guys about the hand. To see what you thought based on my observations of the table and my read on the other guy. I certainly wasnt bragging as I didn't even cash. Basically, it was to see what your thoughts were thought of the play. Apparently I was wrong to fold. Got it.
  7. I really didn't think I was bluffing when I raised to $1k. I figured I was ahead and reraised him. When he insta shoved on me with all of that information is when I thought maybe he actually did have the aces. Seemed to me like nothing other than a set of Js or AA, with AA being the more likely of the two. I could have been wrong but I still have half my stack if he flips over QQ. I have seen your stats and I know you're a hell of an online player so I respect your opinion. I am not trying to argue, simply debate a little bit.
  8. Sounds good. Sorry to have wasted your time. Thanks for the input too. You always give such great advice. You ridicule and don't explain why I played it so horribly. Take care.
  9. No, if he shoves pre I'm coming along for the ride. I got lucky by not repopping him there (as I will do about 98% of the time w/KK) because I can't get away from it before the flop.
  10. No my read was, he raised 10x pre after folding almost every hand for 40 minutes, then he snap shoves my reraise on the flop. This looks like aces. You've been on here for a while so I am sure you have played a ton of live poker. Do you ever just get reads off the players themselves? This guy was either the best actor ever or he was COMPLETELY relaxed and didn't show any concern when I told him what I had. I figured I could be wrong but think he has it and I can still recover even if im wrong. It was a tough laydown and I think it could go either way, especially since I smoothed called h
  11. Are you serious? The blinds are still fast???? Have you played in the WSOP? There is almost zero, and I mean zero pressure from the blinds. I was gonna shove pre, but I figured he had a couple of hands and AA seemed the most likely to me. Textbook play says repop big preflop but you have to consider the circumstances as well as my read. The entire table is playing extremely tight and then a guy opens up for 10x the bb? You don't think there is any chance he has aces? C'mon man. The worst hand he had was AK and I figured if I am going to get it all in eventually, lets see a flop and see if
  12. I was curious to see what answers I would get from internet players. When I reraised to 1K, he instantly pushed all in and I could see that he wasn't the least bit concerned that he was behind. He raised 10x the bb pre, and reraised a reraise on the flop, do you really thing that would do that w/AJ? In a low $ tourney w/20 minute blinds I probably call, but in the WSOP format its hard to imagine he would have anything other than AA. Based on the preflop action I didn't think JJ was hardly even a consideration.I verbalized that I had KK before folding and he didn't even flinch. I folded my
  13. 40 minutes into the $1k event. As you can imagine, w/the blinds at 25/25 and a starting stack of 3k, play is very tight. I was picking up pots every few hands simply because I could. I am on the button and I get dealt KK. Guy in middle position leads out with a bet of 225. I am thinking about repopping big and at the last second I decide to simply call. Everyone else folds. Flop comes J42 rainbow. Villain leads out w/a bet of 400 and I repop it another 600 to 1k. Villain reraises all in and doesnt look the least bit concerned. I think it over for about 3 minutes and decide to.......W
  14. No offense, but that is the absolute worst approach to take in that structure. For over a year I played almost nothing but 90 person turbo ko tourneys on FullTilt (it's one of the sweetest money makers online). It took about a week or so to figure out that chasing bounties and trying to double up quickly was what the majority of these players do, and it makes for some awful play. You will not win playing that way as almost everyone takes that tactic and that is precisely what makes them easy. Simply pick your spots and play your small pairs and suited connectors (and see the flops as cheapl
